    Vandals Spray Acid-Like Substance at Car Dealership

    At least two people sprayed an acid-like substance at a car dealership, damaging 91 vehicles. Hetty Chang reports for the NBC4 News at 11 p.m. on June 12, 2018. (Published Tuesday, June 12, 2018)

    At least two suspects sprayed an acid-like substance on nearly 100 cars at a Fontana car dealership in an odd but effective case of vandalism.

    Surveillance footage caught the act in progress, as two people can be seen dressed up like they're spraying pesticides on plants. However, the acid-like substance was being methodically sprayed on vehicles at a car dealership.

    In all, the vandalism only took a short time but caused "severe damage" to 91 vehicles according to Julio Ortiz, the dealership's general manager. Ortiz said the individuals targeted high price items to inflict the most damage possible.

    The Fontana Police Department is asked for anyone with information on the incident to contact Sgt. Kevin Goltara at (909)-854-8013.
